  • [01] 'Journey to Greece' programme for students

    WASHINGTON (ANA) --The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), the largest and oldest association of American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes, and the University of Indianapolis, a top tier NCA accredited American University, have joined together to offer an unforgettable experience to young people at the University‚s Campus in Athens - the only wholly owned campus of a U.S.-based university in Greece, AHEPA National President Gus J. James II and University President Beverley J. Pitts announced in Washington on Tuesday.

    ?The Journey to Greece Program will give young Greek-Americans the opportunity to return to their roots which are for all of us the roots of civilization,? said James. ?We‚re excited and fortunate to be affiliated with the excellent work of the University of Indianapolis.?

    The "Journey to Greece" programme is uniquely designed to immerse young students in a wonderful learning experience celebrating Greek society and culture. The month-long ‚Journey‚ starts July 20 and ends August 20, 2006. It incorporates a program of study introducing the students to modern and ancient Greece and on completion, provides them with transferable university credits.

    Pitts said, ?We at the University of Indianapolis are very excited about this program - we are looking forward to working with AHEPA on this and other projects in the future.?

    The program will include a tour of the archaeological sites and museums in Athens and excursions that will take the students across the country visiting islands and some of the best-known places of historical interest.

    James and Pitts met in Athens in October along with the University‚s Vice President and Athens Campus Chancellor Vasilis J. Botopoulos.

    The Journey to Greece is open to applicants between the ages of 17 and 20 in either the last year of high school or first two years of University.

    The mission of AHEPA is to promote the ideals of Hellenism, Philanthropy, Education, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence. For instant information, about the programme or about AHEPA, visit
